Lyra had her pretty brown eyes examined yesterday with clear results! Congratulations to her breeders Nicola Singh and Stuart Winterton of Sledog Alaskan Malamutes & Greenland Dogs. We are lucky to have a certified ophthalmologist just 30 minutes away from home, which is quite a difference to when we lived in Lapland, and had to travel four hours to get to the nearest clinic. This was Lyra’s first exam but she sat on the table like a pro and the ophthalmologist got a good look into her eyes. I’m always surprised to see how well the dogs cope with having the lights turned off inside a small room while a stranger gazes into their eyes using a bright light. Maybe they are hypnotised into obedience?
We recently weighed and measured Lyra and she is 59 cm (23.2″) and weighs 32 kg (70.55 lb). That’s pretty much spot on what we guessed when she was a puppy 🙂
